Presentation of Ig

The municipality of Ig (7,163 inhabitants in 2016; 9,880 ha) was formed in 1995 from parts of the municipality of Vič-Rudnik, which was one of the five municipalities forming until then the Civic Assembly of Municipalities of Ljubljana.
Ig is a suburban municipality that is rather industrialized nowdays, but in the past it was a marshy region, as shown in its former symbols.

Coat of arms of Ig

The coat of arms is "Per fess, 1. Argent three stilt houses gules the central higher, 2. Vert a rose argent seeded or".

These symbols were already proposed in 1998 in a public competition, but the Municipal Council eventually adopted different design in 1999. in 2011, however, the six and a half millennium-old stilt houses, excavated in the Ig marshes since 1875, were inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List, as part of the Prehistoric Pile Dewellings around the Alps (record). Thisprompted the municipality to include them in its symbols. Theprocess took some time, for the design to be properly made - with help of the designer of the 1999 design - Valt Jurečić of Heraldika d.o.o. and the heir of the Heraldika trade mark, the company CD mikelis, Mihael Tominšek s.p.. The idea was to retain the general design although no satisfactory version was found for the flag but to include the entire coat of arms in it.

Former flag and arms of Ig - Images by Željko Heimer, 9 August 2002

The former symbols of Ig were prescribed by Decision Odlok o grbu in zastavi Občine Ig, adopted on 3 March 1999 and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 26/1999.

The symbols were designed by Valt Jurečič of Heraldika d.o.o. and Heraldica Slovenica, who kindly provided drawings from which the images shown on this page were made.

The flag is rectangular, in proportions 2:5, green with two vertical white stripes forming a square field in the middle and two green fields on the edge of the flag, with proportions 3:3:8:3:3. In the middle there is the grebe from the coat of arms.

The coat of arms is "Per fess engrailed argent and vert, in chief issuant a reed of the last fructed or between two fritillaries issuant flowered gules and in base a grebe proper".
Valt explained that he had problems to design the coat of arms due to the political fragmentation of the municipal government at the time. The intial idea for the coat of arms was to depict stilt houses called mostiocarske kolibe to represent the traditional way of life in the marshes of Ljubljana (Ljubljansko barje). The lake there transformed into marshes less than 2000 years ago. However, other symbols were eventually adopted.

The flowers are mocvirski tulipan (fritillaries) proper, with red-violet flowers with black dots, but simplified for the sake of heraldry. They also appears on the arms and flags of Brezovica and Trzin.
The grebe (Podiceps nigricollis) is called in Slovene copasti ponirek .
